Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 34...Summer Colour Challenge...Have a Ball!


YAY!!! It is the weekend! I am soooo glad for that! I haven't had the best week really but I won't bore you with the details and even though I am not feeling so great (have a bit of a sore throat) I'm very excited that it is the weekend! So, one of the bestest things about the weekend is the Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge! This week Krafty Girl, Jeanne, come up with a great Summer colour challenge for us...Blue, Yellow and Tan!
If you join us and and use a KKS image on your creation you could be the lucky random winner of, Tubing Miles, featured on Jeanne's super cute and summery card!


For my card, I used Jack from the Moonlight Whispers May Beach release! I think he so cute and he is quite quick to colour up if you are pressed for time! I coloured him with my Copics and cut him out and pop dotted him on the circle!
I made my cardbase 6x6 and mixed and matched some sheets from my BG Max and Whiskers and Kioshi pads. I also used some Kraft cardstock and stamped some of the fish and other accessory stamps from the June Release Mermaid Stamp kit. I cut two circles with my Nesties one in a blue sheet from the Kioshi pad and the other from Kraft cardstock and cut the blue sheet in half and adhered it onto the Kraft. I used some gorgeous MFT Twill tape to cover the seem between the two. On the bottom of the Kraft sheet I used Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder in Tea Dye for the sand. I haven't really used the Distress Powders very much but this Tea Dye powder makes great sand. It adds some texture and just a little sparkle too!

Here you can see a close up of the "sand". I also used one of Kimmie's Mermaid sentiments from the Mermaid kit stamped on Kraft and cut out with a QuicKutz tag die. The Beach sentiment circle is a digi embellishment from The Shabby Shoppe in a digi paper kit called Summer Cottage!
Thanks so much for stopping by, friend...hope you can join the summer fun and I hope you can bounce on over to the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge blog and have a peek at the gorgeous creations by the Krafty Girls...I know you'll have a ball, smile!
Hugs,
